Its called having your cake and eating it too. All they literally have to do is show them holding hands, and you dumb fags go>OH MY GOD THEYRE TOTALLY A COUPLE! HOW ROMANTIC!!!!!
That's how low effort it is. Do me a favor, show me one, ONE panel/page in main canon where they outright state they're now romantically involved in a relationship. No autistic headcanon, no "implying", a real tangible page. Go on, do it.
